Located on the north west tip of West Papua, Raja Ampat is an archipelago consisting of the islands Misool, Salawati, Batanta and Waigeo and over 1,500 small islands and cays.
The pristine beauty of the area both above and below the water is truly unrivalled. The variety of marine life can be amazing offering encounters with enormous schools of fish and regular sightings of sharks, manta rays and turtles. The islands that make up Raja Ampat are mostly uninhabited, with only the faint glow of a few night lights from small villages and fishing boats on the horizon and this lack of population pressure ensures abundant marine life and vibrant habitats.
Raja Ampat liveaboard itineraries vary in length from 8 to 14 nights, mostly embarking in Sorong. Geographically, the area is vast with infinite diving opportunities and each boat steering its own course, offering an unforgettable adventure.
Short on time, jump on board the Mermaid ll, a steel hulled boat operating 8 night itineraries showcasing the best of Raja Ampat. Spoilt for choice, consider the Calico Jack, an intimate phinisi with only 10 passengers operating 11 night itineraries throughout the year. There are a variety of other liveaboards and itineraries available.
For all you divers out there who want a feast of marine life and want to enjoy the search for unknown species, this is the perfect getaway for you!
